Government Ownorship of Railroads.
In viow of the fact that.thero ia
a strong sentiment in tho country
now looking to tho government
ownership of railroads, the follow
ing item will bo interesting to tho
readers of this paper :
According to an oflicial report of
tho United States Consul General at
Stockholm, tho Govornmcnt of Swe
den owns and operates 2,284 miles of
railway, the rolling stock of which
consists of 502 locomotives, 428
baggage cars, 892 passongor coochcB,
3 dining cars, 45 postal wagons, G
combined coaches and baggage, 21
prison vans, 210 Hat cars, and 12,101
freight cars. Tho annual profits
during the forty-three yours of gov
ernment ownership of tho railroads
have averaged moro than one-third
million dollars in American money,
besides the accumulation of a fund
of $2,282,164 for pensioning em
ployees retired on account of ago or
injury, and a fund of $2,079,229 for
tho reliof of widows and children of
Tako Your Choleo.
It is believed that there will bo
several candidates for Govornor next
year. Tho incumbent, Gov. M. B.
Me.Swcenoy, will stand for re-elec
tion. Up to this dato ho has mado a
careful and clean administration of
the high office.
Tho following persons liavo beon
mentioned in connection with tho
office : Col John C. Shoppard, Col.
Knox Livingston, Col. John T. Sloan
and Col. O. L. Schumpcrt. There
may be others whoso names havo not
